Kalki Avatar, the Future Incarnation of Vishnu: Page from a Dispersed Manuscript

The groom and horse inhabit the foreground; the hero, the middle ground; and the hilltop and distant trees, the background. The hero’s throne and fringed canopy are shown in an incipient perspective. The color is more naturalistic and the setting has a tangible sense of reality. Even the golden wings of the horse are new and fabulous.
